It has been almost eight years since his fans were waiting for him to release another kick-ass film and here you go. Thiagarajan makes a comeback with Super Deluxe starring Fahadh Faasil, Samantha Akkineni, Vijay Sethupathi and Ramya Krishnan in the lead. This Tamil-thriller released today (March 29) and guess what, the critics say that this movie is worth a watch. Yes, Super Deluxe has received applauds for its plot, the eccentric concept, music, and of course for its stellar star cast. The trailer itself had garnered immense amount of curiosity and movie fanatics had declared it to be a blockbuster. Let’s a take look at what the critics have said about Super Deluxe. Super Deluxe Movie Review: Vijay Sethupathi, Fahadh Faasil and Samantha Akkineni-Starrer Is Whimsical, Riveting and Brilliant!
The film, in many ways, is the result of a confluence of four different world views (written by Kumararaja, Mysskin, Nalan Kumarasamy and Neelan K Sekar). And it’s amusing how Kumararaja connects interrelated themes and subjects within the confines of his milieu. He seems to rejoice the genre-hopping; the film begins as a black comedy and ends like a dramedy on life, sex and spirituality. And that’s the least spoiler-free review one could write about a film that is overly layered.
Times of India – 4 stars
There is black comedy, double entendres, swear words, WTF moments, political and social commentary, romance, sentiment and even a musing on what it means to be life on Earth. There is ambition, genius, and also a beating heart.
Zoom TV – 4.5 stars
The director has made sure that he takes fans by surprise in the end. Super Deluxe is one film that you cannot miss at all. Sethupathi definitely deserves a national award for his performance in the film. He single-handedly stole the show and will make you want to watch him and only him in the entire film.
